$10 entry to a zoo, that will in no way be comparable to a US zoo. Conditions are less than optimal for most of the animals. I think they do the best with hat they have, and they don't have much when they charge $10...More

We chose not to do the interaction with the cubs but as I understand it, the money goes to rehabilitation. The zoo is clean, but it's hot and muggy and exacerbates the smell of animal urine and feces. It's a zoo people. The kids love...More

I have very mixed feelings on zoos but decided to check it out. At least my admittance fee (like everyone elses) hopefully helps maintain the place and care for the animals. Absolutely gorgeous walking views all around you since you are in the jungle. Still...More
